A little while back I told you about Grateful Body a great organic skincare company, if you missed my review you can check it out HERE.
Before we get into the giveaway let me tell you a little bit about Grateful Body from their website.
Since 1998, Grateful Body's mission has been to bring you 100% natural skin care that is nourishing, effective and luxurious while supporting the health of your skin, your body, and your planet.
Why not dream big? We dream of the day when all skin care products improve the long-term health of the skin as well as its immediate appearance; the day when the body care industry supports organic agriculture instead of the chemical industry. We dream of people everywhere being nurtured every day by coming "face-to-face with nature" thanks to healthy botanical body care.
Our Motivation: Health AND Beauty
We want to contribute to the health as well as the beauty of humanity. Grateful Body is a family business that began for very personal reasons. Our founder and formulator, lost two sisters to cancer before he was out of college. This shock was big enough that he began examining common lifestyle choices and the substances that we (women especially) expose our bodies to, in order to understand why this disease is becoming more and more prevalent. He also studied the medical understanding of older cultures, including traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic and Native American healing, all of which supported his desire to share the powerful benefits of vital plants that are used properly and respectfully.
We want you to have beautiful skin. Grateful body is here to help you achieve your most radiant complexion, naturally and authentically. You don't have to choose between safe products and skin care that really works -- all you need to do is choose your favorite products!

How we make our Skin Care
After using our products, many people are curious how we make these incredibly delicious products that create such amazing results for their skin.
In order to provide you with sublimely effective products, it's absolutely essential that we begin with the highest quality raw botanicals. We collect our fresh plant oils and our organic and ethically wildcrafted herbs from a handful of trusted suppliers and local farmers. Through much testing, investigation and observation, we have developed both an emulsifying system and a fully efficacious preservative system that use only food-grade ingredients. This is how we create such luxuriously creamy cleansers and moisturizers without the use of chemicals.
Grateful Body's Classic products, Pure & Simple Bases, and Custom Blend Boosters are all blended by hand in artisan-sized batches. We use a very low-tech approach: absolutely no exposure to high heat, chemicals, or any other factors that might compromise the value and effectiveness of our creations. We rely on time-honored methods for our botanical infusions -- some of the herbal tinctures steep for several months! This allows the powerful, healing essence of the plants to be fully infused into the liquid. Our pure, potent hydrosols (aqueous distillations of selected organic plants) are obtained only from experts in the traditional steam distilling process. For our super-concentrated extractions, we use a special process that uses repeated waves of high pressure to rhythmically pull the essence from the plant material. From start to finish, Grateful Body products are artfully created by the Grateful Body team to bring you the freshest, most effective natural skin care your skin has ever known.
From our choice of ingredients (vital botanicals) and suppliers (local when possible) to our high purity standards and our recyclable packaging, we strive to do all we can to support the environment. Grateful Body is proud to be one of the feature destinations of the East Bay Green Tours here in the San Francisco Bay Area, "the nation's environmental epicenter."
Grateful Body carries a variety of products including Cleansers, toners, moisturizers, eye treatments, restoratives, treatments, and a full line of custom products. One of the many and most popular of their items is Midnight Oil an exquisite blend of pure, transcendent plant oils and essential oils! This nourishing body oil contributes to smooth, silky, healthy skin.
To use you apply to wet or dry skin anywhere on the body, or add to your bath water. It can be used for dry skin, for massage, baby’s bottom, and even intimate use.
Shannon from Grateful Body has generously offered to give Three lucky Angela's Bits readers their very own bottle of Midnight oil.
